Exactly and she deserves more prominence than the early breakfast show usually gives her. I'd have no objection to Jordan covering Clara whatsoever but Adele is full-time and he only does one show a week usually so R1 probably feel like they have to make her the main cover. I do like getting to hear Adele during the daytimes too, she's a great presenter.
To be fair, it was nothing to do with Steve Holden. If you listen back to that bulletin on 1Xtra, he was there and did the news as normal. It was the R1 outside broadcast technical team that clearly messed up the link back to the Newsbeat studio in London.
